I liked this movie a lot... but the oriental mafia action scene component felt contrived in order to create an inroad to add violence and mayhem to the movie. Transcendence kinda did this too with the anti-AI group which is supposedly Sarah Connor's crowd.
Biological super-intelligence or artificial super-intelligence has represented an avenue for storytellers for generations now. We could make a HUGE thread that literally names all the various movies. Matrix, Blade Runner, Automata, Battlestar Galactica, Ghost in the Shell, I Robot, the list goes on and on and on. The fact that this fascination permeates storytelling so deeply makes me think that superintelligence is not only something to worry about, but a LOT of people ARE worried about it... as they should be. Life will imitates art or whatever...
You could essentially watch every movie and anime on this subject in order and NONE of these would likely represent what a true super-intelligence would do to our lives. Most of the renditions of this event such as "Skynet" are meant to evoke an interesting movie story... A true super-intelligence could "take over" or supersede humanity with way less effort.
I think the book "Superintelligence" by Bostrom if a great read if you want a good "non-fiction" read on this subject. The issue is so serious, that a filmmaker will likely dumb it down with either some "hope for humanity" story or random violence. Look at just about every movie made on this subject and you will find that I am right.
